Do Not Hire Unauthorized Aliens in Indiana

Starting in July 2016 employers in Indiana who knowingly hire unauthorized aliens could face prosecution. 

The Law calls for the following:

Procecutors can bring civil charges against an organization for each unauthorized alien hire and for each location in which unauthorized aliens have been hired.

Employers can be ordered to terminate the employment of each unauthorized alien. 

The employer can also be placed on probation for a three(3) or ten(10) year period.  During the probationary period, the employer will have to file a quarterly report with the attorney general concerning each new individual the employer hires at the specific business location where the unauthorized alien worked.

The employer can also be ordered to file a sworn affidavit with the prosecuting attorney within thirty(30) days.  Failure to meet this requirement will result in the state terminating the business license of the employer.  The revocation could be temporary (re-instated once the affidavit is filed) or permanent.

In order to avoid such penalties and risk their businesses, employers should use the E-Verify system to verify the status of their employees and show that they’ve made good faith to determine the status of their employees.
